Where did they all go.............

I remeber them as a child:


small stumpy dinky ones:



thin fragile ones:




sharp smiky ones:





I rember breaking them off windowledges, eaves of roofs and trees... where did they go?? Haven'r seen any for years or is it that i just don't notice???

I heard a rumour that Jack wants them back!


www.dailymail.co.uk...


en.wikipedia.org...

I guess we just don't have the same weather - i tknow it still gets icy and snows, but it isn't like it used to be ;o(

But hey, snowed today, and that was the inspiration for this thread. I just had this random though of braking off icicles, the pictues are just taken from the internet but it made me think i should go out and take some of my own. If it settles over the next day or so i hope to take some photo's of 'winter'- thought i'd already missed the oppotunity for this year. All four seasons are beautiful in they're own right, but winter has that 'magical' feel about it. I'll post them here, but wondered if they are any of you who wish to contribute?

I have a number of icicles which are hovering at the five foot range right outside my window. It's pretty cool. In the event of snowbeast attack I have ready made weapons.

iciles form on houses that have heat escaping from the roof. Now a days, most homes have better insulation and newer houses are almost free completly of them.

As for the trees, well its only january. The stuff needs to get warm, then cold again. Wait till End of feb.

Maybe, it's the lack of rain in the atmosphere?
Is there many places that have a lot of rain, throughout the year, anymore?

Man, yeah there is
ever been to manchester UK? I;ve been numerous times, each time it rained. I was on a night out there a few years ago. I was in awe of the sky. It was 2 am and the sky was this orangey red colour - it never got dark. Weird feeling. I was walking back to my sisters house in Cheetham Hill from the city centre, feet hurt ;o(
I used to talk to alot of people in Sweden, one lived in Lulea who told me in Summer it never gets dark. I figure thats were the lyrics in the roxette song June afternoon coom from. Cool.
Where i live, its pitch black, eerie but wonderful, you see lots of stars.

I'd be just guessing but probably the further north you get, and depending on whether its inland, coastal, ect?
